HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Kilgetty and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Kilgetty property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will give a thorough analysis of the Kilgetty property's condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Is it worth paying more money for a full structural survey when considering Edwardian home ?

Building Survey is now the correct term for the Full Structural Survey following its renaming recently by RICS. You should choose the Building Survey for the house outlined. The HomeBuyer Report will suffice for a post 1950s Kilgetty property built out of standard building materials.

There are certain limitations exist with any survey - a surveyor is not able to force or open up the structure of the house of inspect any part that could risk personal injury.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What recommendations will you make for a 20s property built from brick chimney? Does the age of the property matter?

Brick-constructed apartments in Kilgetty demonstrate several benefits, but they can also be subject to a number of issues, such as frost damaged pointing. Your house surveyor will cover these in his report along with recommendations. One particularly serious issue is sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall. Kirkwood J A may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01473 718707 or 36 Westbury Rd, Ipswich, IP4 4RF.

A range of courses arrangements and colours of brick building have been used across the country for centuries. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a boundary wall) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost as standard. To properly appraise the valuation the valuer will combine experience of property in Kilgetty and other things about the property for instance: square metres. Surveyors also examine certain fixtures and fittings and will draw upon other assumptions, for example the property is connected to mains services such as water.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there are no problematic legal issues such as no troublesome covenants. Advice should be sought from your conveyancer.

Further area conjectures like connection to sewers, are made in addition to local environmental problems like flood plains, which will also be factored in.
